New interdisciplinary paper on Japanese origins

Mark Hudson's picture

Our new interdisciplinary paper on Japanese origins was just published in Evolutionary Human Sciences.

'The Evolving Japanese: The Dual Structure Hypothesis at 30', Mark Hudson, Shigeki Nakagome and John Whitman

Media summary: The ‘dual structure hypothesis’ of two genetic layers in the population history of the Japanese archipelago still remains widely accepted after three decades, but new research is starting to suggest more complex social relations between Neolithic (Jōmon) and Bronze Age (Yayoi) peoples.
